I apologize for the lack of a July gender reader. I always end up gathering links right as a topic explodes in the media, and my own fandoms have gone a bit mad lately, which resulted in a Sherlock marathon in between the Olympics, traveling, and trying to sort out my thoughts about Elisabeth. Lately I’ve been collecting links on two subjects: geek culture and bodies. Some of these are old news, but I hope that by gathering them in one place, I can show trends in subsections of this subject.
Warning: articles contain spoilers for some series; discussions of sexism, rape.
Today I’d like to share with you all some blog posts and articles about gender and culture that I’ve found quite interesting. Topics covered: the terminology of describing pairing, male privilege in geekdom, a new and awesome interpretation of Sailor Moon‘s girl power, target audiences for yuri/BL, and sexual imagination as cultural.
I hope to make this round-up regular feature on this site–maybe monthly or bimonthly. Readers, what do you think?
